    What is the best form of Selfishness?

    In general terms selfishness is defined as things we do only for ourselves, ignoring others (not sharing) or as overly self-centered. But it can also be used for good purpose.

    Selfishness in a sense of taking care of yourself is good but treat fair with other people.

    If you don't think the feeling of other people, then you are selfish.

      One can certainly take care of oneself, and not harm anyone else. This is better than hurting others to satisfy own interest.

    Anything you do for yourself that inadvertently helps others as well.

      As long as there is feeling of compassion for others, there will always be a win-win situation where everyone gains.

    When you put 100% into making yourself a better person, all around you benefit. When you clean your car, everyone enjoys the ride a little more, don't they? Same with life.

      Goodpal-  As a recovering alcoholic, no one understands this question better than me. The population equal to that of a small country is benefiting from my paying attention to myself and staying sober. Thanks.
